Cow cuddling you exclaim? Oh yes, this is a real thing. Not a petting zoo type of atmosphere, but a therapeutic session with mental health benefits. Since the pandemic has begun, we have lost the ability to touch and hug each other leaving us isolated and stressed out. I don’t know about you, but I for one have been stressed during these times just watching the daily news to see the pandemic situation or the current election drama.
Cow cuddling is believed to promote positivity and reduce stress by boosting oxytocin in humans, the hormone released in social bonding. The calming effects of curling up with a pet or emotional support animal, it seems, are elevated when cuddling with larger mammals
Cows have a higher body temperature than humans and their heart rate is slower, both qualities that help people relax.
Now this Bodine therapy is not recommended in place of mental health therapy, however, it is a good supplement.
What will your cost run for one of these Cow cuddling sessions? 75.00 an hour and the cows are free to get up and walk around at their leisure. They are not restricted in any way. They prefer to lay down to digest their food which makes them the perfect animal to cuddle to.
Will this cow cuddling trend continue? Is this a practice that you would be open to? I would love to hear from you either by commenting below or contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
